MAYA CEO Mickey McManus released two new research papers about Human-Centered Design within the Exhibition Industry at ECEF 2008. This research was co-sponsored by The ExpoGroup.
Just six months after MAYA helped SoloHealth go from an idea for a vision-testing kiosk to having the actual product fielded in Wal-Mart stores, SoloHealth won three awards at an important trade show in their industry, including “Best in Show,” “Best Healthcare Deployment,” and “Best New innovation in a Kiosk Deployment.” The lead judge said, “It was unlike anything else. This unique application is practical, fun to use, and presents a breakthrough technology platform that demonstrates the ability to make an enormous impact on people’s eye health, as well as the ability to drive revenue in the vision market.”
